DISTRICT HISTORY TIMELINE
SSJID was established to provide a reliable and economical source of irrigation water for agricultural use in and around Escalon, Manteca and Ripon.
SSJID went online with a SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system and automation technology to operate the Main Distribution Canal.
NOTE: insert here text to come regarding fishery science program. Year still unknown.
Completion of the Irrigation Enhancement Project resulted in more efficient water use while providing area growers using micro, drip and sprinkler systems (pressure systems) with individualized, automated irrigation access through online and mobile technology. The unique system, servicing 3,800 acres of farmland near Ripon, was constructed over a three-year period.
SSJID and OID provided a unique supplemental spring pulse flow action that enhanced salmon outmigration and contributed to much-needed agricultural and urban water supply needs.
